A Good Day For Prominences, a Bad Day For Clouds... 30th June

Post by marktownley » Mon Jul 30, 2018 12:56 pm

Todays proms looked great, but for me continual cloud meant this was about as good a view as I was going to get... Give it a minute for the animation to load, and right click for full size.

Taken with the Double50. Hopefully less clouds in the days ahead.
